Delaney Set For Debut

Last updated : 20 October 2002 By Andy Beill
Delaney can play in a number of positions, but Steve Burton and Justin Whittle look to be under most threat to be dropped.

Burton made an impressive debut at left-back against Rochdale, and is set to be offered a new contract to tie him down at the club. However, Peter Taylor may opt to go for his new signing instead.

Meanwhile Justin Whittle was struggling with a groin injury earlier in the week, and if he's unfit then Delaney is expected to go straight in for him.

Otherwise, Peter Taylor is expected to name an unchanged side. No goalkeeping cover will be taken for Paul Musselwhite following Matt Glennon's transfer to Carlisle.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Musselwhite; Regan, Whittle, Anderson, Delaney; Green, Ashbee, Keates, Elliott; Jevons, Branch.
Subs: Burton, Holt, Williams, Johnson, Alexander.
